Happy July! We've been experiencing the strangest weather - first a month of heavy rain, and now several days of overcast weather caused by this phenomenon. Nevertheless, the garden continues to produce, and I've been happily making my first batches of lactofermented pickles. If you haven't already tried to make them yourself, it is such a quick and easy process that makes the most delicious pickles you've ever tasted. This blog post will teach you how to make them yourself.
July Homestead Happenings
  • I recently harvested my garlic, and the photos I shared on Facebook and Instagram caused so much interest that I wrote up "The Ultimate Guide to Growing, Harvesting, and Storing Garlic." Now, in July, I'll finish curing the garlic and then store it, by braiding the Softneck garlic, and storing the cleaned and trimmed Hardneck garlic in baskets. 
  • July is also the month to begin planning and planting a fall garden. This spring I purchased floating row cover, and hope to extend my growing season by a few months. This month I will be sowing carrots, beets, broccoli, cabbage, greens, and kale. I have a few favorite resources to keep my garden planning in order; one of them is The Gardening Notebook, written by Angi at Schneiderpeeps.
  • The upick blueberry farm is open and the berries are enormous this year. I'll be making plenty of these muffins in the Sun Oven!
  • Lastly, my good friend Tatiana and I are revising and revamping our Empowered Eating eCourse. One change that I'm really excited about is turning it into a self-study course, so participants can learn at their own pace. We are also adding all-new video tutorials and seasonal recipes. I'll keep you updated about a launch date and special discounts just for subscribers!
We recently added these hand-forged triangle dinner bells to our Etsy Shop, Acorn Hill Handcrafts, and they have been very popular!  

Handmade by my blacksmith husband, Brian, the dinner bells feature a decorative striker and leather hanging cord. 

This month, we're offering a special discount just for Homestead Honey subscribers. Use the code "SUMMER" for 15% off your entire order, through July 31st!

Berkey water purifier
Interested in purchasing a Berkey Water Purifier at a discount?

This week only, through July 7th, I'm participating in a group purchase of Berkey Water Purifiers.  We use a Berkey in our home to purify rainwater for drinking and cooking. They are amazing filters and require no electricity, so they're perfect for cabins, camping, off-grid situations.

I hope you have a great July!
